I bet you grew up listening to adults that breakfast is important. We keep reading in bold letters how essential and important is that meal. Sometimes it is almost like a spam or even a cliché.
Well I assume it is really important at least for me. But we cannot say it is essential because I know some people who doesn’t consider it the main meal at all and they live well and healthy that way. And I actually can say that nowadays I’d ratter have a great lunch instead of a table full of food too early – even tho I cannot skip breakfast.

It is magical trying to recreate a beautiful table with a bunch of fruit on as well as colourful smoothies or juices; yellow eggs; avocados and vivid red tomatoes are mandatory! Impossible not to dream about breakfasts in those Brazilian telenovelas… jeez!
Curiosity: the actors are actually allowed to eat that food on tables during scenes for real.

In fact I only can eat a simple oat bowl  with fruit or a yoghurt at 7am.
No matter what I cannot eat too much before 9am. No way. However I love food and I love having big beautiful and colourful breakfasts and brunches on lazy long and late mornings. No rushes, some music and good company. Usually it happens every weekend; day-offs or during vacations.

Let’s now take a look of great people having their breakfast or their cup of coffee/tea, just because beautiful images and some inspiration  is always a good idea.
